Re: WJR hits another all-time low and takes a big plunge from last month's already terrible numbers!

Went shopping yesterday.
Verifying "WOHO"'s observation that the WOHO array has been dismantled.

Two weeks ago, all four towers were standing.

Re: WPON testing again ?

Kind of related, as they are on the same towers: This afternoon, I heard what surely must have been WCXI 1160 fairly strong in Mexicantown, not booming, but easy to hear. Two old men talking about 1950s cars and 1950s music. They also sounded like they were overmodulated. Also heard Motown music on ...

Wondering how their signal sounded with a series limiting resistor in the line.

Re: CICO-32 in Windsor

Is CICO32 on channel 19 actually on the air?

Haven't seen any sign of it, and on 32 it was always available.

Re: Beautiful Music Stations in Detroit

It is a damn shame that it has been 30 years since WGER (106.3 FM) in Saginaw, MI went from Beautiful Music to soft rock adult contemporary. So why the change?? Does anybody know about this?? Because of the age difference?? I can remember when WGER was "Beautiful 102" (102.5?) in the seventies, and...

Re: Beautiful Music Stations in Detroit

WNIC (AM 1310) continued the FM's easy listening format for about a year after the FM went AC, after which they simulcast the FM in some hours and shadowcasted* The rest. 93.9 Windsor was CKEZ for awhile, then shifted through a dizzying sequence of formats, then played an oldies format, switching to...

They could do better with an all standards music format, IMO.
I know that won't happen, but I'd love it to death!

They could test the waters be bringing back Nightflight 760 for a few months.

Also interesting is the ratings for WXYT-FM.

WXYT-FM has a 4.5 share, whilst WXYT-FM Stream has a 0.1

45 OTA listeners for every streamer.
And they say radio is dead?

Re: WSB Atlanta

I wouldn't be surprised if WSB eventually gets sold off. They may have dropped mentioning the AM frequency because the station could be repurposed. Interesting fact about WSB. The soil conductivity is abysmal in the Atlanta area. Despite a tall tower, a low frequency, and 50,000 watts, its coverage ...

Re: CKWW

With as well heard as ckww is across metro Detroit during all hours, I have a hard time believing it's only running 500w. I don't listen regularly, but anytime I have it seems so strong that there'd have to be some serious dx going on to completely wipe it out. Not impossible, just impressive. It h...

Re: Change at WMAL DC

I guess this is actually good news.

From what I read, I guess 630 was just simulcasting WMAL-FM.

Now they're repeating ESPN radio off of the bird. No interest to me, but I guess a few people there may be interested.

Re: WPAY

Seriously, the land around those Effers must be in high demand. Splendor of 1970s suburbia with a lovely view of the Sun Oil refinery. I guess you're talking about DWLQR's towers. WPAY's is about equidistant Toledo and BG (except it is a few miles east of I-75). No view of the refinery nor Navarre ...

Re: CKWW

I don't think the CKWW signal is strong enough near the WUFL transmitter to mix in the receiver to do that. It sounds like the 580 is getting into the WUFL transmitter and mixing and being amplified and creating the 450 kHz signal. I should go over there with an LW receiver and check 450 kHz. This ...

Family Life radio would never be on a Canadian station, you may have heard a Family life station from another state on 580 I've been tuned to CKWW this morning and again this evening and they're still oldies. No, my car radio was tuned to AM580 from the night before. It could have been some sort of...

So would 540 be better or worse or the same as 580 in the western portion of Detroit and beyond.
I'm thinking CBEF had it better all around. They had more power (2500d/5000n, vs. CKWW's 500u), and a better array (Taller towers of different heights).

They were both beamed NE.
